    Last year I had terrible flies... for no good reason. They were everywhere. I had bought a couple venus fly traps to put up by the pond but in the day that they were sitting in my kitchen, they'd snapped up a whole bunch of flies. It was amazing. They're still in my kitchen this year... with new "traps" and catching whatever flies are foolish enough to get too close! :D

    Yes I have one of the bats too. I got it on ebay and its called the Exterminator. Its shaped like a racket and you touch the button and you can get the wee ******* even in flight. It is the best thing I have ever bought. It works on spiders, flies, wasps... you name it. Just keep it up high away from kids, it will give them a good old bolt. ! ! !

    We can get the sticky fly papers in our village shop too, they look unsightly but my goodness they work so well, the flies don't stand a chance....

    They're so annoying! I work with kids and when we're outside and someone spots a fly; cue 36 three-year-olds running around and screaming! :eek: Also, my doggy gets flies that land on his fur (it's long) and it irritates him so much.

    Seriously hun, it wasnt fun lol. Everytime I thought I got rid of the little blighters, they can back with vengance! I thought I would be a 'smart ass' and tie half the overalls around my waist so they would just attack my trousers but i forgot i was wearing a yellow vest top underneath and they attacked that too, so then i put the overalls back on and was itching the rest of the way because i had trapped some little sods in!

    coooor.... epic post there ;)
